submissions open for GLOBALFEST flagship 2018!

gF's flagship festival takes place every January and is North America's most important world music industry event. Last year's festival sold out in advance and attracted over 1,500 music industry professionals, members of the press and fans! gF’s flagship festival is a springboard for launching touring careers in North America. gF alumni have gone on to tour North America at venues such as Hollywood Bowl, Lincoln Center, Bonnaroo, Coachella, The Kennedy Center, the Apollo Theater and hundreds of other theaters and festivals. Tours and cultural exchanges that result from gF's showcases have helped to build an ever widening audience for global music and by extension, an increase in international cooperation and collaboration.
